Main Features of Tutankhamun
King Tut's tomb is located in the "Valley of Kings"in Egypt. His tomb is quite small compared to how high up he was. The tomb walls are all gold with paintings.
Why is Tutankhamun's Site Important?
Tutankhamun's site is important because
it is the only Ancient Egyptian tomb that was discovered near perfect. The tomb was raided in ancient times causing some damage and missing items but other than that it was the only one with its wall paintings still perfect and not washed out.
Howard Carter had been working in Egypt for 31 years before he found the tomb. After World War I Lord Carnarvon hired Carter and himself and Carter started to excavate "The Valley of The Kings" searching for the tomb. Carter said he found many clues including a faience cup, a piece of gold foil, and a cache of funerary .
